Why buy this home?

Sometimes a modern property can lack curb appeal, this one however certainly does not. This double fronted, rendered property would make even someone who does not like a modern home want to look inside. Block paving in front of a single garage provides driveway parking and the storm porch and low maintenance shrubs around the property create a homely feel. There is also a charging point for an electric car.

The entrance hall in a property can make or break your first impression of the rest of the home and this one sets the tone perfectly for what you are about to see. Amtico flooring leads to all the accommodation on the ground floor and there is space for a sideboard under the stairs and a bench in the corner, the ideal place to sit and put on your shoes before leaving.

The kitchen/diner is the first room you come to, and it is nothing short of superb. When originally built, the kitchen and dining room were two separate rooms, but the current owner has opened them up to create one fabulous space with a contemporary, industrial feel. The dining area has enough space for a large table for family meals and the extra breakfast bar is the perfect place for friends to perch and catch up over a cup of tea or something stronger! The kitchen itself has been fitted with ample storage including a large pullout cupboard along with floor and eye level units and a grey worktop; subway tiles and a grey screed floor enhance the industrial feel. There is space for a double width oven, a washing machine in a cupboard under the breakfast bar and integral appliances include a fridge/freezer, a dishwasher and a cooker hood.

The lounge has a warm, inviting feel and is the perfect space for the family to unwind after a long day. Due to its size, you can arrange your furniture in a way that suits you and change it around whenever you want to keep it feeling fresh. Dual aspect windows and French doors leading out to the rear garden make it a lovely and bright room.

The W/C completes the downstairs accommodation and is fitted with a toilet, a wash hand basin and has a window.

On the first floor, you will find four bedrooms and the family bathroom and continuing the theme from downstairs, every room is immaculately presented. The master has a fitted wardrobe that spans the width of the room, and space for a king size bed with bedside table. It also has its own ensuite, ensuring there are no queues to the main bathroom in the morning. The second bedroom again has a fitted wardrobe and more than enough room for a bed with bedside tables and a chest of drawers. The third bedroom is currently being used as a nursery, but this is also a double bedroom. The airing cupboard is situated in this room, housing the boiler which was replaced in 2018. As the sellers often work from home now, the fourth bedroom makes a great office where you can fit two workstations should the new owner require. If needed as a bedroom, it is a good size single or would make a wonderful nursery. The family bathroom is clean and tidy and is fitted with a bath with a waterfall tap, a shower attachment, a wash hand basin and a heated towel rail.

The garden at the rear is low maintenance and a little oasis. Artificial grass eliminates the need for a lawn mower and the decking area is positioned perfectly to catch the sun as it moves around during the day. Raised flower beds positioned around the lawn are perfect for someone who is not a keen gardener but likes to potter about. There is a summerhouse which has previously been used as an office as it is insulated and has power and lighting. At the back of the summerhouse there is a separate storage unit ideal for any gardening tools or children's outdoor toys. Beyond the summerhouse there is space for a children's swing or a climbing frame and there are gates at either side of the house that lead to the front of the property.

The garage has power and lighting and there is some storage in the eaves.

More about the location...

Dunstable is a market town in Bedfordshire steeped in history and has so much to do.

Several parks and open spaces are kept by Central Bedfordshire Council along with Dunstable Leisure Centre. The centre was closed on June 4, 2017 to undergo a £20.1 million redevelopment incorporating a brand new town library. 'The Dunstable Centre', which opened in June 2019 (albeit without its swimming pool) includes state-of-the-art leisure facilities, gym, swimming pools and a flexible community space for other public and community services.

Within the town centre is the Grove Theatre, Priory House Heritage Centre and the Priory Church where Henry VIII formalised his divorce from Catherine of Aragon. At the heart of the town sits the Quadrant Shopping Centre, while across High Street North a secondary shopping community named the Eleanor's Cross Shopping Precinct hosts a modern statue commemorating the original cross. Nearby Luton has the Waulud's Bank prehistoric henge and Luton Museum & Art Gallery.

Dunstable Downs, a chalky escarpment outside the town, is a popular site for kite flying, paragliding and hang gliding, while the London Gliding Club provides a base for conventional gliding and other air activities at the bottom of the Downs. Further into the countryside are the open-range Whipsnade Zoo, a garden laid out in the form of a cathedral at Whipsnade Tree Cathedral and the Totternhoe Knolls motte-and-bailey castle.
